The F.R.O.G.S. (Families Revering Our God in Song) Choir provided both the Gospel Acclamation (“Come into God’s presence,” a Russian folk song) and a gift of music (“Kum B Yah”) before the sermon.


Thelma Ruffin ThomasOur preacher was Thelma Ruffin Thomas, a storyteller from New York City, who illustrated the theme of gratitude found in the Gospel lesson of Jesus healing ten lepers. In addition to her stories—some new, some familiar, and some from her own life experience, Thelma involved the congregation in singing during the sermon time. Listen to this sermon (because of technical problems, the sound quality of this week’s sermon is poor).

More about Thelma Ruffin Thomas and her storytelling can be found on her website: <http://www.thelmasplace.com>.
